2022 Country Participation
We welcome you as a participant in the annual World of Nations Celebration (WONC). WONC will be held February 26th - 27th, 2022  in Downtown Jacksonville and celebrates world cultures through an educational exposition featuring a number of international cultures on display.

Over the years, WONC has helped thousands of visitors experience the world in a very unique way through cuisine, mercantile, entertainment and cultural lessons represented by more than 30 countries.

As you consider participating as a non-profit country representative, the Country Manual includes guidelines to help you have the best experience possible. Your acknowledgement of the rules and guidelines is required. For questions, contact Michelle Tedrick with the City of Jacksonville Sports & Entertainment Division at 904-255-5428 or by email at
